Complimentary Mandatory Valet Parking
Players are required to valet park their cars. There is no charge. Pull up to the spa/tennis clubhouse and leave your car with the valet. Go through the breezeway and turn right to follow the walkway over the bridge to the courts on the far side of the canal. Remember to leave yourself enough time to have the valet park your car and still get to your match on time.
Match format for ages 55-70 will be a regular best of three tie-break sets. Ages 75-90 will play a third set tie-breaker in lieu of a full third set. (First to 10 by 2). ANY DRAW OF 4 OR LESS WILL BE A ROUND ROBIN.
Main Draw Tiebreakers
All tiebreakers played in the main draw will be regular tiebreakers which means: The winner is the first one to reach 7 points, must win by 2 points- change ends every 6 points. We are not using Coman tiebreakers.
All consolation matches will feature a third set super tie breaker (first to 10 by 2) in lieu of a full third set. If you don’t win your first match, you must advise the tournament desk immediately after your match that you wish to play in the consolation draw.
Proper tennis attire required. No sleeveless shirts, please.
Pro shop gift certificates will be given to all winners and finalists in divisions with 8 or more players. Gift certificates will be given to the winners of smaller divisions and round robins.
